    If there's no excessive play in the pin/wing hinge (manufacturing defect) and the hingle plate is lying flat on the center tower like it should be, then tack the bolt head to the hinge plate if you've already tried red locktite first (without success). Generally the locktite will do the job though.

    To identify the leak down as a cylinder or valve issue swap the lift and lower valves for one another. If it stops the leak down issue you know its a valve problem. If not then you've got a defective lift cylinder. Neither are too common.
